It was in bin/R.bin in 1.9.1, and is not in bin/exec/R in 2.0.0

gannet% nm -pg bin/R.bin | grep RestoreAction 0826da30 D RestoreAction

Grepping the sources shows it is defined in

src/main/startup.c:static SA_TYPE RestoreAction = SA_RESTORE; src/modules/gnome/system.c:extern SA_TYPE RestoreAction;

and removing the `static' solves this for me. I guess no alpha/beta tester used the GNOME interface ....

Fixed in R-patched and R-devel now.
